My thrifting hasn’t been super exciting lately – partially due to lack of time to visit thrift stores and partially due to my brain focusing on our bathroom/closet project. I can barely even get into my closet, so I’m not too excited to buy new items to shove in there until I can see what I already own again.
We did have a family thrifting trip where the three of us visited a thrift store to look for treasures. Travis found a couple small exercise things to keep in his truck, Jack found some STEM toys and another starter set of Snap Circuits, and I found two cardigans.
That’s it. Two cardigans.
They’re good ones though!
Halogen Cardigan, $4
You’ve got to love the thrift store – there were two similarly colored cardigans on the rack together. One was super worn from Loft and marked at $12. The other one was new with tags from Nordstrom for $7.99 and violet tags were half off that day. Oh, and the Nordstrom tag was for $69. I’m not complaining though, because I got quite the deal and added this to my cardigan collection for just $4.
I wore it to work yesterday:
Pearl buttoned cardigan, $4
This black short puffed sleeve cardigan with little pearl buttons was so cute and vintage looking, that I had to give it a try. I googled the brand and I think it’s one sold at TJ Maxx and Marshalls, so it probably wasn’t super pricey when it was new. I don’t have many short sleeve cardigan options, so this one fills an empty spot in my closet.
